Pressure Cooker Potato, Bean, Vegetable Stew
2 1/2 pounds potatoes, any kind or a mix, regular or sweet
5 to 6 ounces small dried beans (any kind), soaked overnight
3/4 to 1 pound carrots, cut into 1/2 to 3/4" chunks
2 medium onions, diced
6 stalks celery, cut into 3/4" chunks
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon EACH: dried sage, thyme, rosemary
3 bay leaves
4 ounces dry white wine
2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
2 cups broth
Water or broth, as needed
Fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
This fits in my 6 liter (6.4 qt) cooker. All measures are approximate. Adjust to your taste. Nothing is pre-cooked! Just toss it in & go.
1) Prepare all ingredients. Cut potatoes into 1" chunks. If you chop a few of the veggies into a finer dice, they will cook down and help thicken the stew.
2) Combine all ingredients except for the parsley and salt and pepper in your pressure cooker. Add additional water or broth to cover vegetables.
3) Cook at regular to high pressure for 6 minutes. Quick release the pressure once finished. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the stew is too thick after cooking, just add liquid. Stir in fresh parsley and enjoy.
This is a very flexible recipe. All measurements are approximate - adjust/add/omit to your taste. This is wonderful on its own but would also be good over rice, other grains, pasta, etc. Use any kind of beans or a mix. Small red beans, navy beans, blackeyed peas, black beans, etc... larger ones might not cook fully.
